New Product Ideas / zigbee or z-wave ?
« on: April 29, 2013, 07:02:57 AM »
hi,

another possible - based on the diminutive scale of tinyduino, and the low power requirements of many projects.

Using Zigbee communications should require less power than wifi, and provide an interesting mesh network platform for sensors & actuators.

Z-wave is more of a punt, but it could make a networked thermostatic sensor grid feasible.

Hi,

as the tinyduino is so small and low power, it strikes me that giving it a sustainable power source would be a good idea.   clearly there's nighttime too, so having a charger and (matched) solar connector to store energy for nighttime use would be appealing.

... being able to use a mini wind, or even water flow based system could also be interesting.
